Got this sexy wolf done on friday by Line Marielle in Denmark! It's a continuation to my existing work from her on my forearm, so now Im the proud owner of a halfsleeve 😁 Will end up with a full sleeve eventually, I bet! Theres also another raven, a Valknut symbol and a verse from Håvamål in old norse, so all of the new stuff isnt visible here. Maybe Ill upload another pic later.

Im so stoked, cant wait for it to heal.

Got my right arm sleeve touched up last night. I had planned to go work out today at Orange Theory Fitness, but my arm is super sore, and we usually do lots of weight lifting. Not sure what I should do. Thoughts and feelings?

that's easy, skip a couple days of workouts.

Thanks, Dan! I was pretty sure I should skip, but I love my workouts (like a weirdo), and I was hesitant to skip. But I am going to skip. I'll go back Friday. 🙂 Thanks again, man!

I took an entire week off when I was in SF a couple of weeks ago. It's been over six years since I took an entire week off! Interestingly, it's either the sitting that I do on a daily basis or my workouts but my back doesn't hurt at all after skipping a week. I feel like a slug but at least my back doesn't hurt! @oboogie

I'm actually amazed, but I was able to get decent runs in after getting my knees tattooed. The other day I did a 15 miler the morning after getting my thigh tattooed. I was pleasantly surprised. But if it's sore, definitely makes sense to err on the side of caution.

I  had to do some route setting for my University within a week of getting the Steve Byrne piece I got.  That was tough to keep clean and it was sore and itchy the whole way; chalk, dirt, sweat, and vinegar literally everywhere.

Another souvenir from my trip to Spider Murphys last month by Laurent Trelaun.

 

I'm always amazed at the tattoos you get, where you get them, and the travelling you do! You and that tattoo kick butt!

I had been wanting this tattoo from Laurent for two years! It was a total fluke that it came to fruition on my trip. While Theo was working on my mermaid, I told Laurent that I really wanted a kewpie in a horseshoe from him some day. He was like "how does Thursday work for you?". Hahaha...booked and done! @Oiocha

Horitomo. Two sessions, all electric (rotary and coil).  Photos do not do this justice! I will say that first four hours of outlining and shading was super hateful. Of course, I am already considering having him do my left shin. What is wrong with me? 😜

Amazing, how bad did your shin swell up after that?

I don't get to go to Pagoda this year but I did have a little thing done yesterday. Great thing about working with the same person over a period of time. I brought a co worker to her for her first tattoo a few weeks ago and we were talking and she came up with the idea of a vintage suitcase (perfect for me). Didn't really know what to expect and this is what she came up with. She remembered my three most common travel destinations. How can you not be grateful for people like that.

Love it! Always fun getting small one-shots, they almost make you believe tattoos don't hurt.

@Boiled Dove I love your new tattoo! That is a super fun one. For my shin, I was actively managing the swelling. I took it really easy, kept it elevated as much as possible for a few days. It swelled up more after I traveled home which was after the second sitting. My shin didn't swell as much as I thought it would, though. The worst swelling to date was on the back of my left knee, in the ditch. THAT was swollen!

That's one wicked collection you got, @Dan

Just out of curiosity, how old is your right sleeve? I mean it looks a little bit more faded than your left, but it still looks good.

thanks !

both my lower arms are mostly from the 80's & 90's,

my upper arms/shoulders are newer,

my right arm is still bright,I think the lighting and mix of styles make it look different,

both arms were done in the same time frames alternating back and forth.

Six months of heaven, then they called me to come back on a project 3 days a week. Good money, but looking forward to it ending next month. Finished my bike and rode it to work yesterday!

Thanks! [mention=9318]pidjones[/mention] How's retirement going?
